Fidelity is launching a series of options that will mimic alternative hedge-fund-rescue strategies. Alternatives have surged in recent months with interest rate risk permeating the economy and volatility creeping higher. Led by Vadim Zlotniov, president of ‘Fidelity Diversifying Solutions’, the subbrand will hope to deliver funds investors are demanding in liquid alts. This is part of a wider push into alternatives where Fidelity has already dipped their toes into distressed debt, real estate, P/E, and crypto.
Finsum: Alts are worth considering because of how uncorrelated they are with stocks and bonds right now.
